The Truth About Detox Diets and Cleanses – Save Your Money


So you feel bloated


Unmotivated to exercise, and you can’t seem to put down the potato chips.

What do you do?

So many people ask me about cleanses and detox’s. I see them promoted on social media, in commercials and health food stores.

It’s easy to get drawn into the marketing of detoxes or cleanses because they’re everywhere.

But in my they opinion don’t work and are a total waste of money.

Companies that push these products prey on people who don’t have the motivation to eat healthy and exercise.

They sell you the solution to all your problems by simply buying a detox in a box when you’re not at happy with your health.

However after, you’re left with nothing to show for it.

Over the counter detoxes and cleanses will NOT cleanse you of toxins and make you feel better.


Here’s the truth. People feel like crap because they EAT like crap.

Sure you may lose some weight on a cleanse, but it’s mostly water weight and maybe even a little muscle loss.

You may also feel annoying symptoms like fatigue, headaches, nausea, and brain fog  which are the very things these programs promise to cure.

Detox and cleanse programs will promise to eliminate stored toxins, pesticides and heavy metals that have accumulated in the digestive organs as a result of consuming heavy amounts of dairy, gluten containing grains, coffee, alcohol, and processed meats.

This is totally false.

Our digestive organs that process waste and filter out toxins don’t need to be “cleansed”, they clean themselves and function fine without needing outside help.

How Do You Get Back On Track?

The less healthy we eat, the less efficient the body becomes at keeping us clean and healthy.

There’s no detox, cleanse or herbal supplement that will “detoxify” us.

The only real way to naturally detoxify the body and get it working efficiently is to eat a nutrient-rich diet of whole foods like you’ll find on our TFW Warrior 20 Food List.

And stay away from processed garbage!

LEMON WATER isn’t going to “clean you out” and solve your problems if you’re eating poorly.

You have to look at the bigger picture.

* Get rid of the DIET mentality, and start thinking about nourishing your body.

* Eat plenty of plant-based foods and lean protein.


* Try cooking more meals at home, this helps reduce your sodium intake as well as your spending.

* Start moving more, get on an exercise regimen, join a gym, or start taking yoga.

* Drink more water and make an effort to get more sleep.

* Cut down on the alcohol

Keep it simple, don’t overthink it or get overwhelmed with all the information out there.

Just get started!

Here’s the bottom line there’s a better way to get healthy. Making healthy choices is really all you need. Not a gimmick, not a week long cleanse, not a detox.

If you focus on eating healthy and make it a habit you’ll be able to achieve the goals you want in the long term.
